* Towards the end of ''Film/TheBourneIdentity'', Jason Bourne faces [[BadBoss Treadstone's director Conklin]], when he finally realizes his "true" past as a black-ops agent.
-->'''Bourne:''' I don't want to do this anymore.
-->'''Conklin:''' I don't think that's a decision you can make.
-->(''[[ShutUpHannibal Bourne shoves Conklin into a wall]]'')
-->'''Bourne:''' [[ThatManIsDead Jason Bourne is dead]]. You hear me? He drowned two weeks ago. You're gonna go tell them that Jason Bourne is dead, you understand?
-->'''Conklin:''' Where are you gonna go?
-->'''Bourne:''' I swear to God, if I even feel somebody behind me, there is no measure to how fast and how hard I will bring this fight to your doorstep. I'm on my own side now.

* ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' features not one, but ''two'' [[SecretProjectRefugeeFamily Secret Project Refugee Families]]. In fact, every season of Nanoha concludes with her becoming friends with some manner of ArtificialHuman. By season three, an unethically produced combat cyborg is the main protagonist, using her abilities to save people in places and situations that normal people couldn't.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' does a [[TropesAreFlexible magical version]] of this with its many {{Youkai}} characters. Youkai by definition are "those who oppose humanity" and born from fear of the unknown. They tend to have a specific "purpose" that they were born to fulfill, most commonly to antagonize humans. Not all of them ''want'' to though, despite the risk of death or worse for being forgotten after abandoning their "purpose". Byakuren's Buddhist temple was created to help youkai either find a new purpose or simply come to terms with non-existence. Of course, most of the younger ones don't even know they have a purpose or why they should care.

* In some respects, the ''ComicBook/SilverSurfer''. While he wasn't born for destruction, he was essentially remade for destruction by {{Galactus}}. He later decides to rebel against his former master. [[Film/FantasticFour The movie]] invokes this trope even more.

* Much like Shichika, Tsubasa Kazanari from ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' was raised to be a weapon, or rather a tool for the Kazanaris to use. She also convinces herself to be as such, to the point where most of her {{image song}}s are about being a sword that strikes everything. It is not until the third season, ''Symphogear GX'', that she realizes that [[spoiler:her father's aloofness was his way to make her distance herself from the family's pressure and pursue her own dream of singing]], after which she declares that her blades are now wings that take flight towards their dreams.

-->'''HK-47''': "Observation: I am a droid, master, with programming. Even if I did not enjoy killing, I would have no choice. Thankfully, [[BloodKnight I enjoy it very much]]."

* In ''Anime/NarueNoSekai'' a spaceship built for combat decides it doesn't want to fight anymore and hides on Earth. [[spoiler: She's later given permission to marry a human and live as long as she wishes on Earth with the understanding that a weapon that doesn't want to fight is useless even if they force her to return.]]

* The TropeNamer is ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant''. The Giant is a huge robot who arrives to Earth from outer space. He has all kinds of weapons and presumably was designed as a vanguard unit for planetary invasions. However, he's injured upon arrival and becomes amnesiac, so he develops a childlike and innocent persona. [[spoiler:After rescuing to boys from falling and Hogarth runs up to him,]] the Giant quotes this trope word for word.
